Abdominal adhesion obstruction - Definition


Definition


Abdominal adhesion obstruction is when a section of the digestive system is obstructed around an abdominal adhesion, a scar inside the abdomen usually resulting from previous surgery, but which can also be caused by certain infections. The principal symptoms are severe abdominal pain, vomiting, as well as constipation due to the bowel movement being "blocked" by the obstruction. Diagnosis is generally established on imaging scanning, using abdominal x-ray without contrast, or a scanner. Abdominal adhesion obstructions must be operated on as quickly as possible.
